Welp the little guys dead. I'm trying out a new seedling. If it works out I'll start a new log but this one can be closed or deleted or what needs to be done

Your not a grower till you kill a few plants and I've killed my share, fortunately there's alway more seeds.

Thanks guys. Just a little frustrating because my first grow my seedlings grew fine and I can't seem to get it right now for some reason.

What has changed? soil, nutes, did you keep a log book on the first ones? I write everything down every day, what I did, what I didn't do, what problems I have had and what I did, (with the help of everyone on this site).

 

Don't get too frustrated...it will all work out. Many people behind you and pulling for you and your babies.

The first 5 seeds I planted last year, I straight out killed two of them.  I didn't realize that all the nutes they needed to start out were already in the soil...I swore I could have heard them say "We're hungry, man!!".  They died before they could produce enough leaves to make a pin joint...lol

 

On the other hand, last year I promised to toss the crop when I was asked to.  The person asking changed their mind a few days later, and I was able to salvage 2 clones after they sat in a dark trash bin for 4 days.  Go figure.

 

Hope the rest of 'em work out for ya :)

Knot, I tried out a seed starter mix in a solo cup, that's the only thing that changed so far. I'm not sure if it was too acidic or if I did something wrong with watering, but it just didn't grow. My new one (sensi super skunk) I stuck it in a jiffy pellet like I did my first grow and it's growing fine now. Much better than the WW. So who knows, maybe it was just a bad seed or maybe it was the starter. 


And thanks K&G :) Gotta learn somehow!

White Widow can be finicky sometimes but I've had seedlings die for no apparent reason so it's basically try again.

Well I have finally figured out why my seedlings died. Its so simple it kinda makes me mad that I would make this mistake. I've been over watering. My super skunk started to yellow and turn brown just like the others. I cut back the water and its looking healthy and growing fast. It has some fat little leaves At least I won't make this mistake in the future. It only took me like 3 times to realize what I was doing lol

watering can be tricky. I always try and give only enough water so that I can feed and water every 2 days. You will learn how to judge, we all did. I was always taught you water just enough so that it drains slightly through the holes. Also, not to leave the excess water in the drain trays.

Yep killing the plant with kindness is fairly common among new growers, too much nutes and water is hard on a plant. now that you've done it you won't make that mistake again. I've discovered all kinds of great ways to kill plants over the years, it goes with the territory.

Shoot, sorry KGB I already potted it earlier. The roots were covering most of the sides and bottom of the soil and it looked healthy. I did it immediately after KD gave me the okay lol.
